Nursery: There is no nursery provision at this school.

Admission The Local Authority admission policy is as follows:

The Authority does not allocate places in schools by referring to defined communities or catchment areas. All children, including those residents outside the Barnsley Metropolitan Borough, have an equal right to apply for a place in any school.

In order to ensure that your child is considered for admission to the school of your preference it is necessary for you to complete and return an application form. It should be noted that submission of an application form is not in itself a guarantee of admission to school.

The Authority, in normal circumstances, will only admit up to the agreed standard admission number of 30 for the school. In the event of school being over-subscribed, the Authority will determine which children are eligible for a place by using the following priority of admission criteria:

First, to those children with a statement of special educational needs where our school is named on the statement in accordance with the council’s procedure

Second, looked after children

Third, to children with brothers and/or sisters attending our school on the proposed date of admission

Fourth, to children living nearest school, the distance to be measured by a straight line between the child’s ordinary place of residence and the main entrance to the school building.

Full details of admission arrangements for schools in the Barnsley Metropolitan Borough are contained in the ‘Admission to School – Advice to Parents’ booklet, which is available free of charge from either school, or the Education Department (01226 773689).
